Neodymium magnets are technological marvels and the process for creating them is sophisticated and delicate. The main ingredients of a neodymium magnet are neodymium itself, iron, and boron; the chemical compound known as NdFeb. The exact ingredients depend on the grade or strength of magnet being produced. However, the production process for different strength magnets sees the same size different stages required to produce a neodymium magnet. . Step 1 – The Mix Firstly, all the elements to make the chosen grade of magnet are placed into a vacuum induction... Read More
Behind the scenes at Magnet Expert Ltd, we’re always working on exciting projects that we can soon reveal to our customers. Today, we have a real humdinger! In recent months, we’ve been collaborating with Robot Wars’ very own competitor, Magnetar!
At first4magnets, we recently got hold of some super slow motion cameras. Naturally. after having fun using them to film large neodymium magnets squashing things in 2000 frames per second, we thought it would be interesting to shoot a permanent magnet Gauss rifle in slow motion and explain how one works…
